Or perhaps you're searching for a videographer? Someone with the experience to craft a cinematic wedding film without turning your wedding into a busy television production.

about image
I began my career at Shepperton Studios almost 20 years ago. It was an exciting place to work – I’d visit the sound stages during my lunch break and there’d always be a new set to explore.

Moving on from film and television, I found wedding photography and videography to be the perfect fit. Capturing the drama of a wedding day as it happens, unscripted and real - that's what I love the most about my job.



"Just to say we received the package a few days ago and we’ve been too busy showing the pictures off that I’ve not had time to reply! We are absolutely over the moon with the quality of your pictures and we can’t believe you managed to capture so many beautiful moments during the day.

We love the slideshow and the little concertina books were a lovely surprise! We would like to say a big thank you once again for cutting short your family holiday to photograph our wedding, and for doing such a marvelous job."

Helen & Richard 

"I just wanted to say on behalf of myself and Owen and all of our guests that you were absolutely fantastic we all adore the photographs we have received and they will serve as a fantastic reminder of the day for everybody. 

We love how you where able to catch moments that we otherwise would never have seen and literally all our guests have remarked at how friendly and professional you were, we certainly wouldn't even consider recommending anybody else to our friends and family we know you where perfect for our wedding from our first meeting over coffee!"

Sinead & Owen

"Joel filmed our wedding last September in Cumbria and I cannot thank him enough. He captured our day perfectly and we were blown away by how amazing the video was. We really enjoyed watching our wedding day back with our family and friends and everybody absolutely loved it!

Joel made us feel very relaxed on the day especially my husband James who does not normally like to be in front of the camera. I cannot thank and recommend him enough!"

Natalie & James

"It was such a pleasure to have Joel as our wedding photographer! He put us at ease instantly by communicating and updating us throughout the whole process making sure we were 100% satisfied and happy at all times. He would go the extra mile working very hard together with us to fit in all the things that we envisioned for our day and we were not let down.

He captured a truly spectacular day whilst making it feel relaxed and natural. We and our guests loved how personable he was, never intrusive and just slipped into the background working his magic to photograph our beautiful moments ...
